Description
What have such English terms as "civil society," "democracy," "development," or "nationalism" come to mean in an independent India, and how have their meanings and uses changed over time? Why are they the subjects of so much debate, both in their everyday uses as well as amongst scholars? In this book, two experts on Indian politics, education, and economics offer lucid summaries of central terms pertaining to contemporary India, addressing such questions as: How has the concept of "Hinduism" come to be framed? What is "caste," and does it have quite the same meaning now as in the past? Why is the idea of "faction" so significant in modern India, and why has "empowerment" come to be used so extensively?
